Growing Organic Vegetables

Growing Organic Vegetables

Organically grown vegetables are free of potentially poisonous sprays, artificial colourings or preservatives that may be found in vegetables purchased in the market. Organically grown vegetables invariably taste better.

How do you get started?
Choose the right site in your garden for growing vegetables.
The vegetable garden should be sited where:
1. It receives maximum sunlight (not be shaded by trees and buildings), be well drained.
2. It has good soil.
3. It is relatively free from weeds and other competing plants.
4. It has access to a suitable supply of water.
5. It is sheltered from any prevailing winds.
